One of the problems of being positive is that our brains are hardwired to, look for potential threats. This is a survival mechanism that protects us from danger. This serves you well if your climbing up Mount Lassen and you are on the lookout for a bear, mountain lion or a poisonous snake. Though to much of this mechanism breeds pessimism and negativity. Pessimism is bad for your health. The challenge is to transform the tendency towards pessimistic thinking into positive thinking, through these simple techniques: friends, family * Practice Positivity * See the bright side of Life Practice Gratitude Smile Surround yourself with positive and loved ones. Stay away from negative conversations and putdowns Set goals in your life. Enjoy life Don't get addicted to anything, especially drugs and alcohol Live within your financial means Remember the quote.. Life is short. Don't waste it with negative people who don't appreciate you. Keep them in your heart but keep them out of your life.

Setting certain charges for departing load (DL) customers, including the Power Charge Indifference Adjustment (PCIA), ongoing Competition Transition Charge (CTC), and Cost Allocation Mechanism (CAM). : Retum of $428.4 million to eligible customers for the sole of GHG emission allowances (including the Califomia Climate Credit for residential customers). Exact amounts are subject to change and CPUC regulatory approval. PG&E will provide the CPUC with updated amounts later in the year to ensure the most current information is used to set customer rates. BACKGROUND The ERRA is used to record fuel and purchased power costs that can be recovered in rates. While this may result in an increase in rates, PG&E recovers these costs with no markup for return or profit. The purpose of this Application is to forecast costs of obtaining energy for customers and also to approve the amount to be returned to customers from the sale of GHG emission allowances for the calendar year of 2018. If the CPUC approves this Application, PG&E will begin to recover its costs in electric rates effective January 1,2018. At the end of 2018, PG&E will compare actual costs to the amounts forecasted in this Application and will incorporate any differences in next year's Application. HOW WILL PG&E'S APPLICATION AFFECT ME? Most customers receive bundled electric service from PG&E, meaning they receive electric generation, transmission and distribution services. A summary of the rate impact for these customers was provided in a table in the bill insert announcing this filing that was sent directly to customers in June and July, including the effect of the California Climate Credit for residential customers and GHG allowance returns for eligible non-residenldal customers. Based on rates currently in effect, the bill for a typical resldeP(dal Non-CARE customer using 500 kWh per month would decrease from $110.77 to $106.22, or 4.1 percent. Actual impacts will vary depending on energy usage. Twice a year, in Apdl and October, eligible residential customers will also receive a California Climate Credit in the amount of approximately $39.68. HOW WILL PG&IE'S APPLICATION AFFECT NON-BUNDLED CUSTOMERS? Direct Access (DA) and Community Choice Aggregation (CCA) customers only receive elecfric transmission and distribution services from PG&E. PG&E does not purchase energy for these customers. However, this Application addresses the cost of transporting energy for these customers through PG&E's elecbical system using the PCIA, CTC and CAM. Residential DNCCA customers also receive the benefit of the Califomia Climate Credit. In addition, eligible non-residential DA and CCA customers receive the benefit of the GHG allowance refums. The impact of PG&E's Application on DA and CCA customers is an average increase of $0.04, or 0.3 percent. Anotber catsgory of non-bundled customers is DL customers who do not receive eleddc gene
